In NYC you would be best off trying to get into the union's apprenticeship's program.
From what I see/hear though this is not as easy as it used to be.

go ahead and look into all the Union requirements, bone up on your math and algebra, apply to get in the Union apprenticeship. in the meantime start taking electrical courses at a local Junior College maybe, apply at non union electrical contractor an electric motor shops as a helper. donate time at Habitat for Humanity, see if you can get experience wiring houses what do whatever they have for you that way you can get experience in the residential building process. take some algebra classes.
